We propose a framed slotted Aloha-based adaptive method for robust communication between autonomous wireless nodes competing to access a channel under unknown network conditions such as adversarial disruptions. With energy as a scarce resource, we show that in order to disrupt communications, our method forces the reactive adversary to incur higher energy cost relative to a legitimate node. Consequently, the adversary depletes its energy resources and stops attacking the network. Using the proposed method, a transmitter node changes the number of selected time slots and the access probability in each selected time slot based on the number of unsuccessful transmissions of a data packet. On the receiver side, a receiver node changes the probability of listening in a time slot based on the number of unsuccessful communication attempts of a packet. We compare the proposed method with two other framed slotted Aloha-based methods in terms of average energy consumption and average time required to communicate a packet. For performance evaluation, we consider scenarios in which: (1) Multiple nodes compete to access a channel. (2) Nodes compete in the presence of adversarial attacks. (3) Nodes compete in the presence of channel errors and capture effect.
